Community Planning: Strategies for Rural Counties


Rural county leaders across the country use strategic planning to tackle local challenges. Through innovative best practices in community planning, counties take advantage of their place-based assets to address community needs and encourage economic growth. NACo recently spoke with Jamie Hart, senior planner with the Madison County Planning Department in New York, and Kate Somers, program manager at the Randolph County Housing Authority in West Virginia, to discuss new strategies for community planning that address a variety of topics including smart growth, the aging population and workforce development.
